PAETEC Provisions 200+ Mbps Ethernet-over-Copper Services

PAETEC has successfully provisioned high-rate Ethernet services in excess of 200 Mbps via its advanced Ethernet-over-Copper (EoC) network. The first 200 Mbps customer is a prominent web marketing company which is using the service to connect its newest state-of-the-art datacenter to the Internet.

EoC utilizes multiple bonded copper pairs in the same conduit to reach businesses where fiber optic facilities are either not available or cost prohibitive. PAETEC's deployment leverages Overture Network's Carrier Ethernet edge and aggregation solutions.

"With more enterprises taking advantage of emerging technologies like cloud computing, data streaming, and server virtualization, the need for dependable, high-speed Ethernet service delivery is rapidly accelerating," said Clint Heiden, president of national accounts and fiber services, PAETEC. "By leveraging the latest EoC advancements, we're able to meet increasing customer demand for robust bandwidth volumes at a fraction of the cost of other media."
